    Looking for recommendations on construction articles for building a four square for 40 meters

    A while back, there was an amateur radio operator, who lived about 10-miles north of me, who had 8-each HyGain HyTowers phased for 80-meter and 40-meter operation.

    My pair of 40-meter verticals phased works very well. However, with the 8-verticals phased, I think he could hear an 80-meter crystal dropped, in Outer Mongolia, at high noon local time!

    Let's get back to reality here...

    When you double the size of a array, you can reasonably expect between 2 and 2.5 db of gain.

    Going from one antenna to 4 will give you between 4 and 5 db of gain.

    You may, if the noise happens to be in the direction of a null in your array see somewhat higher improvement in s+n/n

    However, if a deep null for noise rejection is your goal, you will find a small, adjustible loop to be far more usefull as you will be certain to be able to steer the null to the required direction.

    It would be lovely before you build it according to the links from #2, to simulate it with EZNEC+v.6
